Rated 5 out of 5 by Juliahix from Reliable, consistent, affordable, fantastic quality This is my favorite printer of all times. Wonderful speed and quality output always reliable. Working in real estate, the various scanning and printing functions and the speed with which I can quickly print out detail listing information is really helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Banke of America from Documentation needs work Works well but connecting my computer to it over my Wi-Fi was difficult. I needed a code to connect but neither the HP help videos, nor the manual gave good directions to locate the code. Just by luck I was able to associate the acronym to the actual name of the code and found it on the printer. HP needs better documentation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laura in KY from Solid printer Prints text well; love the multi-functionality. This is my second HP Laser Jet Pro and I noticed that this version is louder than the previous. It also appears to go to sleep and has trouble waking. Otherwise, I’m very pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Xris from Great little all in one printer ...with one big problem. I have only owned it for about three weeks. The machine itself is great. Clear, sharp lines. Good color. Clean scans and copies. Quick. Relatively compact size. No issues with the setup. Perfect for a small, home office. Covers all my needs and then some. Its a little noisy, but I don't mind that...sounds like business :) I can't give it any higher rating though because it is CONSTANTLY disconnecting itself from my network. I get one print job and then it disconnects. I have to fuss with it to get it back online. Every single time. From what I've researched online, this is an HP issue top to bottom. I'm being generous with the 3 stars because of how nice a little printer/scanner it is, but the network issue is SUCH a hassle. If you need to print a lot for your business, or are not "IT savvy" I do not recommend. If you turn it on - print something - turn it off until you need to print again in a week or so, then its perfectly fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrea T from MOSTLY GOOD, Some Not-So-Good I ordered this printer on Amazon, on sale and was very excited to replace my previous printer with one slightly smaller that really fits in my home office. And I LOVE that it is WHITE!! The printer repair place I took my old one to helped me find this model that they recommended. It is good quality! One thing I don’t like though is that it is quite noisy when working. It is silent while resting (which is great!), but it is kind of loud while warming up and also while printing. Everything else seems to be fine so far. I have not yet printed a lot of colors on it but I am happy so far. Setting up the scanner, connecting it to my computer was a bit tricky, but we figured it out. (I had a tech friend help me set this up, it’s not exactly for the non-tech person). One more thing I like is that the ink toners are not as expensive as my last printer was, especially if you get the XL longer lasting ones. So now — the Not-So-Good — This one is my 2nd one I ordered! The 1st one from Amazon turned out to be defective!! After my friend set it up for me, it looked like everything was working fine, and all of a sudden when I went to scan, the message screen had an error 13 mesage on it. So I did what it said, and it didn’t work! t was frozen. Then the screen went completely blank, all black. Then I tried unplugging, & other things, and then the screen went completely blank, all white! So I called the HP tech help line, and the guy was good. But he concluded that since it was sort of dead, non-responsive, he couldn’t give me any directions on what to do. So he declared it “defective” and sent me a return label, and then offered to order me one right on the phone. That was convenient, but having to send back the first one, and WAIT for the second one, was a real nuisance! I just hope that his one works and lasts! I still recommend this model for home or office!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LTRO from Bad experience I had a terrible experience with this printer. It would not print clearly when I purchased it. It was incredibly difficult to contact HP for assistance. After many attempts to reach someone by phone, I was only able to engage in a chat format with customer service. After 3 days of jumping through their hoops of tests and proof of poor print quality, they finally agreed to send all new toner cartridges. Days later I received 1 new cartridge. I returned the machine which was difficult for me as it was so heavy. I originally had it delivered. I STILL have NOT received the refund to my card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by airose from Great Printer Duplex color printing and wireless. We love this printer so far. We upgraded from an older laser black and white to this and we're very happy with our purchase. It's noisier than I anticipated and also the setup is a little confusing at first but once we downloaded the HP Smart to our computer, everything is running smoothly. One issue that I notice is if the printer isn't running for a few days, you have to restart it to get it all to connect properly but now knowing that, it's no biggie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnnieNC from Does the job This was a replacement for our 12-year old HP laser printer, that sadly could not be repaired (roller issue, print quality remained excellent). This printer does the job but in comparison to the older model is noisy and feels “very plastic”. I have not been able to connect it to my Apple scanning software and therefore the quality of the HP scanner app is sub-standard for the detail often required. If you are looking for a simple LaserJet this will be ok.

Rated 1 out of 5 by D. Gray from Poor Print Quality on the Color LaserJet Pro MFP I am very unhappy with the quality of printing of my new HP Color LaserJet Pro. Previously I had the HP Color LaserJet CP2025 and absolutely loved the print and accurate color match it produced. Crisp imagery and color are important as I am a self employed designer and rely on quality proofs for my clients. Unfortunately, after years of it being an incredible workhorse of a printer…it died. I spent over an hour online with a rep asking them to recommend a comparable printer and followed their suggestion and purchased the Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw. Sadly, it does not come close in print quality to my former HP printer. If print quality matters, do not purchase this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick RF from Perfect Entry Level Laser MFP Unboxing and initial setup were simple. Performs as expected. Printed text, graphics, and photos are crisp and clear. Scanning is simple and straightforward. Document feeder is great. This is used by a single office employee. I would not recommend this for a multi-person office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dlfang from A Great Printer/Copier It's a great printer at a reasonable price, and even better since it was on sale. I owned the previous model, MFP M277dw, which was still providing excellent documents. I left it with the church I retired from so they would have an good quality printer/copier to use. The M283dw is just as good if not better, and I look forward to many years of trouble free service.

Some features I really liked are missing from this printer (e.g., manual feed more than one sheet at a time, scanning app is extremely poor, hard to set printer defaults). But it is reliable and so far works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zdtucker from Great Home Office Printer This is the perfect printer for my small home office. I am running 2 separate businesses from this space, and the printer, scanner, copier does what I need and was easy to set up and use within minutes. The only issue I had was setting up my icloud email account to the scanner for "scan to email", but quickly searched and found that I could use a gmail address to do this and it worked. Just be sure to google "how" and use the tips and tricks to get it to work with your gmail. There are a few steps that one wouldn't think of.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mixed feelings from Great printer, if you can keep it alive for more than a few years Now on my 3rd printer of this model. It is excellent for home color laser printing. That being said, I’ve had 2 catastrophic failures which have required me to exchange the printer once and buy a new one altogether. Seems like a suspicious way to get everyone to subscribe to the extended warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tori B from HP makes great printers with accurate, vivid colors. We have owned a numbers of HP printers during the lifetime of our business. We started out decades ago with one of the first B/W printers that ran faithfully for years. Each of our employees has a color laser HP. We honestly feel that you can’t beat them. My only complaint with this latest model is that it has a chip so you can’t use any aftermarket toner. Even though we normally purchase the terribly expensive HPToner, it irritates me that I have no other option should I want to use an aftermarket cartridge on an older printer.

I love that it is a multi-tasker and that (if I wanted to use it), it has wireless capability. It does double-sided printing, too, which is a plus. I only wish that it also had the capability to do 11 x 17 sized scanning and printing. That would definitely kick things up a notch.

What year is the production of this printer. I have a laserjet which is now 7 years old and according to your service department, my new HP computer does not support my old printer, therefor it no longer will scan. works great otherwise

Asked by: JDanneo
You may want to look into a free application named NAPS2, Not Another PDF Scanner 2. It may work as long as you can install a TWAIN or WIA driver for the scanner portion of the MFP.

Thank you for your question! The maximum print size on this HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283 is 8.5" by 14". For banner printing please see the HP DesignJet printers. Those printers use roll paper which is great for banners and many other uses as well.
